With fraudulent operators currently existing alongside credible cryptocurrency businesses without regulation, it leaves prominent startups and exchanges with the vital task of educating consumers to ensure more adoption and making cryptocurrencies more synonymous with safety than they are with scams.

The Proterozoic Eon 2. The oldest mobile belts are found in Archean rocks, such as the Limpopo belt separating the Kaapvaal from the Zimbabwe craton. Younger belts were formed during a continentwide thermotectonic event known as the Eburnian 2. Still younger belts of the Kibaran thermotectonic event 1. The end of the Precambrian was marked by a major event of mobile-belt formation known as the Pan-African episode about to million years ago , which generated long fold belts, such as the Mozambique belt along the east coast of Africa, the Damara and Katanga belts extending from Namibia into the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Zambia , the West Congo belt between Angola and Gabon , the Dahomey-Ahaggar belt between Ghana and Algeria , and the Mauritanide belt from Senegal to Morocco.
A unique late Precambrian evolution is recorded in the so-called Arabian-Nubian Shield of northeastern Africa and Arabia. There, large volumes of volcanic and granitoid rocks were generated in an island-arc, marginal-basin setting—an environment similar to that of the present southwestern Pacific Ocean.
